Before we get started with today's lesson,
as many of you know,
here in the United States,
one out of every three children
is raised in a fatherless home.
Some studies say one out of four but a lot of times that's because
they count two dads as being Anyway, let's leave that alone. All right, so
somewhere one out of three children one out of four raised without a father
and they say that 85% of the children who display
behavioral problems are raised in homes without fathers.
Fair enough. Okay.
What does that say about someone who
doesn't know the father? I'm really I'm asking I mean, what do you think
needs a real social issues that people deal with here?
What do you think what does that say?
That there's that there's a hole that there's a hole in a life probably a hole in your hearts
every once in a while you see a headline come up Mother, you know, daughter reconnected with mother through Facebook after 45 years or something, you know, and it's just and they cry and they didn't know each other for 45 years. They didn't even have a relationship but still There's something inside that you know, makes them long for for that person.
let's go a step further. Now that type of person that child grows up with that hole in their life they're not to be blamed. I mean, that wasn't that wasn't their fault.
But what about a child who grows up in the house as a father
but if you ask him child I mean you know child's grown up now 15 1617 year old years old. So what's your father's the father's part of the life father provides for him you know, goes to work every day and
you know, does things with the children
does his part in raising the children and then you ask the child what's your father's name? I don't know.
You kind of strange right?
So well tell me about your father.
Let me about your father what
what is you know, characteristics you know, what is he like? I don't really know.
So what his friends call him Okay, if you don't know what his friend's car I don't I don't know.
Would that child be blameworthy for
the opportunity to actually learn
we're not talking about the one that grew up without a father in the house with some of this father's in the house the father Yeah, yes.
Obviously that the Father
The right Okay, go ahead.
Okay, let me let me repeat the father provides for the child for the children in the house nurtures them is part of their lives. This particular child if you ask them doesn't know maybe the other children as they find they know what his name is. They know what his friends call him. They
they show gratitude tourism, but this one here he just he's
he doesn't know he I mean, well, he or at least he acts like he doesn't Yes.
I just said he was 17 1518
child has brain blood.
Were they I don't think that there's any honestly I don't really think that this is open for debate.
Child is blameworthy because he can't tell you anything about his father. Okay, now let's substitute that. What about the one who doesn't know his Lord subhana wa tada
what kind of hold is that leaving the heart?
What kind of
you know, jack rejection if you will over last $100 favor will have to be there for a person. And let's just take it now we have people who have been Muslim
15 years, 16 years 17 years.
If we sit down we asked him What's his name? Allah. Okay, what else? Maybe R Rahman r Rahim.
Because even Allah Subhana Allah instructs us to
FMLA at the boon Al Quran which is wishek. Hanif is doing what you brothers on a regular basis, right?
that to the board of the Quran, pondering over the meanings of the Quran, there is nothing that we can ponder over that is greater than Allah Subhana Allah Himself and He is the greatest of the unseen that is in this life.
And when were instructed to ponder the Quran,
the pondering over the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. And knowing who he is, is the greatest thing that one can know subhanho wa Taala so that pondering is very important in knowing the lust hanseyachts through his names, is one of the best endeavors that we can be involved in, in this life when it comes to seeking knowledge. And it was very important that we don't take any of this lightly.
In that vein,
you know, we
last week we resumed with this series 2.0, if you will, and we were dealing with as you can see the name of Karim Allah subhanaw taala, His Divine Name al Karim. and by extension, because of the way we've covered it, Elijah wet, right.
we covered quite a bit last week in terms of linguistic meaning and what the scholars have said about the last Pantheon his name and Kareem and the evidence from the Quran and so forth. But we didn't finish.
And initially what I was thinking was we will go ahead and finish with the benefits of knowing this name or some of the benefits at least of knowing this name, Al Karim, and then we will move on, but
Allah subhanaw taala put in my heart something else. And that's because not all of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala are going to affect us in the same way. Right knowing a loss translate some of the names of Allah Subhana Allah will endear us to him. Some of the names of Allah subhanaw taala will make us revere him and magnify His glory and hold him in high esteem so pending without other names will inspire hope in us.
Ultimately, though, there are several names that a loss of human data has and by extension, attributes and qualities because every name of a loss of habitat is indicative of a quality or several qualities and characteristics.
There are some names and qualities which we are also supposed to embody. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us these names of himself. And we are also supposed to embody those characteristics. That's not every name of Allah subhanaw taala but there are several that are and Kareem is one of them. Right. So the same way that Shaykh Hanif was talking to you about forgiveness, right? Allah Subhana Allah says Allah to he buena and yo yo Lola calm
in other words, you need to forgive you need to pardon you need to overlook because you want to last tranche Allah to forgive you so that quality from that Allah Subhana tada has, we are supposed to embody that when the prophets of light it was sent him sent that the person who has a mustard seed of Kippur will not enter Paradise. What did the man reply What did he say back to the prophecy center?
So what I was like, we like to wear nice clothes and nice shoes.
Right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha Jimmy loan, you hit bull Jamal. Allah is Jimmy.
He is beautiful subhana wa tada and he loves beauty. So there are certain qualities that Allah subhanaw taala has, that we are supposed to strive to embody ourselves and Kareem is one of those this will cover inshallah Tada. Later in the lesson in the light of Kareem, you hit boo column, Allah Subhana Allah is Kareem was creamy,
generous and honorable. Mashallah Ji. And as we'll
do in our revision today, and I also so the point is that because Karim is one of those names, that
shows a quality of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are supposed to try to embody. Now again, there's no comparison, we're not doing a comparison. Because whatever qualities Allah subhana wa Taala has our eternal qualities, and they're infinite. And there's nothing that we're that that is going to compare our embodiment of that quality to him Subhana who would tada or his quality, but it doesn't mean that there's not some similarities in the bass Meaning, if you will, so we know that a lot of Hamlet's Allah hears everything. And we also hear but our hearing is not like his hearing subpanel without it, because he hears everything. And there is no voice that he gets mixed up because 20 or
30, or 10 million, or a billion or 3 billion people are talking at the same time.
All right. Whereas with us once four or five people start talking, there's no way we're gonna be able to tell the difference. Anyway, the point is, Allah is Kareem, and he loves elcom, he loves honor. And all that comes with that honor and dignity. And so we, we need to cover this is a name I didn't want to rush through. And I, you know, illustrated how to put it in my heart to just say, slow down. Let's take this step by step and shallow Tyler, we're going to revise what we covered last week, we had the lights out and go into a little bit more depth this week, as we finish off and shout out to Adam, because there's some very important points that we need to take by take away from
knowing this name. Okay. All right. So, again, let's just
go over the questions. Because at the end, you need to be able to answer these questions and more, but at least these questions further
questions for lesson two? What is the root of the law's name?
What meanings does this include?
Stop there. So again, another reason why I really felt we needed to just kind of pause on this name and go into a little bit more depth is because almost across the board, people translate old Karim to be the generous.
And that really is not. It's not a bad translation. But it's not totally accurate, either based on the way that the word generous is currently used in the English language, as will cover the way the generous was used back in the 15th century is exactly what caught them. You know what? generous or fun? Or Kareem means in the Arabic language today,
if we look back, you know, at what it used to mean in the English language, but it's no it no longer carries that meaning with it. That meaning of nobility. All right. And so I think it's very important for us to understand that and I've seen several translations go off.
Because they only know that allows that l Kareem means the generous. And if it's used like that, in some places, it won't make sense. Now,
how many times has
been mentioned in the tie we covered last week, how many times twice or three times based on one mode of recitation now? What is another seminar?
And what was that? Oh, Joe? wet elbow wet, right. What is the difference between those two names? Okay. What's the difference between l carnitine. And l Joe? What? Who remembers? Yes.
Right. Oh, Kareem is the one who gives without being asked right. And l Joe whack.
Right underwear gives more than what you asked for. So you ask and he gives you even more time.
What is it
relationship between knowing that a law is helping and going to the masjid Name three other benefits gained from knowing that a law is
Evidence for Al Karim. So basically this is just obviously a revision of what we took last week. But I wanted to make sure we were all on the same page. And because it only comes in the Quran, because this name is mentioned in the Quran twice. I thought it beneficial just to bring that back.
And I do want you to kind of tell me in that first passage that we have here when my check out of a magical enough see woman couple of in a lot for him not to be as I need Yun, Kareem if anyone is grateful As for his own good, but if anyone is ungrateful, then my lord is free of need. He is rich, he is self sufficient. He is elderly, and he is Kareem.
What context did this come in?
What context did this idea come in?
It was about a profit.
Sulaiman so the man is right. And what happened?
One of the jinn said what to him?
right I'll bring you the throne. What's wrong?
Thou civilities by mass. Yeah, you know masaka pirot Vika al Karim. Oh man, what is it that has lured you away have turned you away from your Lord, the Most Generous lkt and kitty type
with the hadisha Sandman medulla who narrated that a loss messenger so long as he was sending said that you're doing is hiding and caring. When a slave raises his hands in supplication to a law. He is shy to let them fall empty. No matter what can be Robbie Can I carry this interesting Alibaba? We are human love to add. He mentioned his and he mentioned in his tafsir that here last minute Allah brings his name al Karim for obviously for a reason. And that is because one who is Kareem who has been generous to you was giving you without you asking who has sustained you
who in himself is noble
you're not supposed to deal with that kind of
person. Forget the fact that it's a loss pattern. You're not supposed to meet that person with with bad behavior with disobedience with you understand America behind general just you know you I mean as the frilly people say out of pocket, right?
Just that's not how you would deal with that kind of person.
Because that person has been courteous to you they've never done you wrong. And so here Allison is out is reminding us that he is L curry.
And so what is it that is taking you away from him somehow? What Allah deceived you What was it for you? mesh followship linguistic meaning
for me, cat j RM, which has the following connotation.
associated with it intrinsically honorable from the very inside.
Noble good, virtuous yet honorable and nature noble in nature, right. So here we're talking about
again, I don't want you to get caught up in the name of Allah Subhana, Allah otkritie. We're looking now at the root at the root word more of a linguistic meaning, which is why it says linguistic meaning there because we just kind of looking at the root, right? So we're talking about one who is in themselves as a part of the nature in essence, they're honorable and a noble. All right. This is one who is Kareem. Okay, next to to be generous, giving the deficit. Okay, what's the difference between one and two?
Hmm. What imply number two implies the main word is given. Right? So number one, the most important is the interval
The most, I would think at the core is intrinsically honorable. Okay.
But what's the so one is talking about?
right one is talking about what the essence the being, and the other one is talking about what? action action. And so what happens is most people get caught on number two. And that's how to it which is the giving part. Why? Because that's the relationship that allows pantalla has with us. Right? his honor, his nobility, if you will, so handle to Allah should cause us to love him should cause us to praise him.
But more what we think about is the second type, which is the fact that he gives you understand, so there's the being and there's the action, you understand the essence and the action namshi
to be great importance. Precious. Right? And most of those meanings can be found in the Arabic dictionary Makai Silva, as I mentioned, Thai mesh
is not limited to the prevalent prevalent, prevalent concept or understanding of generosity that is that which everybody accepts. To be it is not limited to what everybody thinks it is. Right? generosity, long term. How did the Prophet
described uses How did our prophet SAW Selim described use of it?
He said he is Elkhart emo Ebon old curry me Listen, I'll carry mo ebenen carry me.
A will carry me now. What nil carry? Use of heaven we aku Ebony Venus, half. Ebrahim la macera right. So he said he was what the Kareem meaning the what the one who gives a lot the one who's generous, honorable, you understand, shouted word is being used. He is the one who was why because he was of noble lineage. He was Eben yaku, the son of Yaqoob, who was honorable the son of his hat, who was honored with the son of Ibrahim, who was honorable.
the Egyptian women describe uses
my solos echolocation
let's say louder.
She said in Arabic for right corner Hashem Illa my head, Basha in Hana. illa melachim carry.
When they when they saw him.
They said good guy.
That's really what Hashem
really does. Say, good god, this is not
see, because Mr. talise ease she heard all the gossip. And she said, Okay, we're gonna set up a banquet.
Give them some knives. And let's see what happens. Let's see if you can contain yourself. When they saw him What happened? They cut their hand. They couldn't believe the beauty. So panela
the radius of use, and they said, they said this is this cannot be a man. This is what a Malecon carry an angel. That is what and that that is generous. beneficence? No, that is noble and an honorable
understands Pamela. So this is just from a linguistic perspective so that we really get a better idea of what Kareem means because what law he inshallah will see by the by the end of the lesson, but in the lab, how we need to be more courteous. And it doesn't just mean we need to give more that's part of it. As part of but it doesn't it means we have to be better in our character. All right.
I mean, literally the prophesy centum said that, but yeah, sure.
But by the way, say Can I can I before you ask the question, can I say something? This is actually a pet peeve of many of the scholars.
And I've heard a number of them mention that it is not I'm not talking about you she please.
No, no, it happens so much that I just felt like it was a teaching moment.
She says that. You should never say to the one you're questioning. I have a short question.
Have you ever seen a short questions that shake was staying with me it was asked.
We start our first 10 week course. Last year was what
was the lackey the Lhasa tea?
That was the that was the answer to a short question.
You understand? So short question doesn't mean there's going to be a short answer a lot of things, the short questions, right. But But what it does, what I'm saying is the reason why it's a pet peeve of some of the scholars is because they say, yeah, just because you have a short question doesn't mean that I can answer it in a short period of time.
Yes, my question is,
fitting the characteristics
that a law describes, nor ingredients
is that one of the
consequences of one acts honorable, and we and I based this understand exactly what you said,
Keep going exactly what he says, I see neuro on you. Right. Don't mess it up. Right. And so I'm asking is, I think that that's questionable, and it's experienced? I mean, what I mean, is that, that people actually have experienced that where there is a
I don't know another way to explain it. But like, I mean, it's not literally like if he was walking down a dark street, you wouldn't need a flashlight. But there's something that comes off, you know, from that person that, you know, does feel like light. And I don't know another word that we will use for it. And so yeah, that's that's something that definitely has occurred and does occur. Willow I know, but publishes linguistic meaning when be the modern English word generosity derives from the Latin word generous, which means of no birth. Oh, so we see that word now, which is what noble JIT generous that word generosity in the beginning, was used for that when someone was of noble birth.
All right, keep going. Most recorded English usage of the word generous up to the 16th century reflect an ever Socratic sense of being noble like someone's
sense of being of noble lineage, or high birth to be generous with literally a way of saying to belong to nobility. So if you said this person was generous, that means that that meant that they were from a of a noble lineage now
generation does come from the same route but I'm not sure how it all ties in.
I got it there's no there's several they said well, go ahead you can go ahead and say
specifically to birth that which generate
that's what comes from so and that's from the piece that Dr. Todd here maybe before I came
just for that reason to
yeah, we mixed in there though, that would that would be a mixed
That's right. It does because it takes it from from Abrahamic if we can use that term loosely.
17th century, use of the word began to change. generosity came increasingly to identify not literal family heritage, but in the ability of spirit to be associated with hyper another words, people who came from nobility were believed to have certain traits, they were believed to embody certain characteristics hold themselves a certain way, right. And so, now instead of them identifying with the lineage, they started identifying the word with the characteristics Okay. That is with various admirable qualities that could now vary from person to person, depending not on family history, but on whether a person actually possess the quality and the and the reason why I mean, not to get into
a whole philosophy of terminology, but as society became less and less
aristocratic and more democratic, and then that whole issue of lineage and it wasn't as important then things started to shift over to the qualities and not the not the lineage. During the 18th century, the meaning of generosity continued to evolve needs to change in directions denoting that meaning open handedness and liberality in the giving of money and possessions to and that's basically how it's used today if we say someone is generous, we don't mean that they are of noble and honorable character right? We mean that they give a lot of of money to whatever it is or they may treat their guest well or whatever it person could be otherwise rotten a liar whatever, but she
was still described them as being generous, right? That person and it could not be you know, if you want to follow the Arabic way they would not be described as Korean. Even if they gave a lot of sadaqa for example
that was the way is used in English now correct. The way is using the English now but that's why I wanted to take it back so that we can see that there actually was you know, it was pretty equal. No
All right, so that that was just a build off of off of last week because I really did want you to get those meanings down and not walk away if you walk away six months from now inshallah you won't forget that Kareem does not just mean generous, that in fact, the root of it really goes back in and Arabic language and even in English but the root of it goes back to to one who is intrinsically honorable and noble and because of that honorable character then they they give from what they have and the last parameter Allah has everything so he gives freely.
And this is just a repeat of last week further shake echoed on so that we can
set up Corinne is the one who initiates begins the blessing before it's deserved, and gives liberally without seeking compensation without seeking to get paid back right honorable one who gives without measure his generosity encompasses around the entire creation, even those who are ungrateful for his blessings and use them to disobey him out cutting gives and takes nothing in return.
This, these are 16 meanings for Al Karim. That is a last time dad his name, Al Karim
that were mentioned by Eben Alavi about him mo low tide and not to be confused with Eben Arabi. It had been allowed to be was a great Maliki scholar who wrote
camp via camel Quran is that was called or just got I came across. And he he wrote a book, dealing specifically with the fifth rulings which are derived from the ayat in the Quran, and then I'll quote it to be whose Tafseer is famous, came after him and built on on his Tafseer.
All right, we're not going to go through those because we're not going to finish if we do. All right. But there, but and then we've basically we've covered a lot of these these meanings. All right, fire Bismillah.
Next, benefits fellowship is those who know that a lot is occurring will strive to spend time in the mesh, and that's kind of where we stopped last week. And why do we say that we strive to spend time in dimension
because the measure is the house of Allah. And when you go to the house of one who is Kareem?
He's going to show his generosity to you he's going to take care of his guests know
that this I think this part and again, we you know, I don't I don't want to cover what we already covered last week. But I think this part is important, important too, because we you know, we have this generation of the unmasked
those who feel like because the mask or because the leadership of the masjid or whatever, you know, it has lost its relevance to them. Because the topics that have been talked about are
not relevant to them but whatever I mean,
the end of the day you don't like mash up politics.
You don't like the fact that all he talks about in the message is the same thing over and over again and they don't deal with social justice issues and Okay, all that's good, but it doesn't change the fact that this is the house of Allah.
And if you visit the house of laws of Haryana then Eliza Joe, will you cream okay? honor you.
And he'll give to you.
And so staying away from the messages not harming the message
is harming the person who declared themselves to be unmasked. And then you get this whole movement people on Facebook, hashtag unmask them.
This is real. This is real real, like very real.
Well, what happened, you know, somehow law in this country,
we basically follow exactly what the Christians do, but just usually a decade later. So, if you look back, the unchurched movement, that was a real thing.
And the unmasked movement is real and it's been around for a few years now. And you know, just basically encouraging you know, people not to go to the masjid
you know, they have Muslim they come out or eat,
lol lie joumana
not not done mass movement, they might do their own Juma like on the side somewhere they run it they'll rent a hall do they own relevant cook bedroom I
have a sister Claudia Dan, what a mess.
Allah is Al Kony will grow their love for Allah because of his honor and generosity, yani because he is alpha carotene. So they grow in their love for lost parents.
And they will strive to thank him with their hearts, tongues and limbs. And that part is is critical, because if you recognize that a lot of Hannah who will China is the one who has given you and has economic he really has honored you and has provided for you, then you will strive to to thank him. It is a natural consequence of knowing that he is kidding. Yes.
already mentioned it, and I'm not trying to add ignorantly purpose. But is there any particular hint or suggestion you can give us such that
we can fit that which it says in other words that we will is anything we can do is just coming to the mosque is what I'm saying? Is anything we can notice or do that we strive more to thank you.
Okay, are you I'm not understanding which part are you talking about? point one or point two are both
more in both but more important. In other words, we come to the masjid
we, we know that whatever. Okay, okay, so you're saying you're asking are there things that will help us be more grateful? Exactly, not?
To me personally. And obviously I think people have different experiences.
I'm saying within Islam with with within Islam, that cause them to recognize the favours of Allah subhana wa Tada. However, our Prophet alayhi salatu salam pointed us in a direction that I think is the best for this and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. And that is the dual eye that he instructed us to make in the morning and in the evening known as Cejudo listed file. And that is
or the best deal for forgiveness part of that is when we say
a boo laka binaire motyka Allah Yeah, well who will be then be right abou lack of Informatica Leah reminding us of that, see, because don't just say Do I like the way we run through fancy high and we don't even think about what we're saying is really do I. If you acknowledge a last minute Alice Nima upon you every morning, and then you acknowledge a boo laka B, then B confessed to a loss out of your sins, then you're confessing that
you are misusing those blessings from a loss of habitat because every sin that a person commits
is a misuse of allows parents Alice Nima. And so you remind yourself that my site is a NEMA, I can't look at something that allows parents on me, I'm not doing that. My, my ability to hear is a NEMA from the last time. And I'm not going to use that. I mean, really, to me that do I,
honestly, is one of those things that helps a person on a daily basis, at least twice a day, to ponder the fact that everything you have is a nightmare from Allah Subhana Allah and not to misuse it. And then to be thankful for what you do have and to use it, to be obedient to lost parents, allies or to bless you with a car, use that cover law, use your car to go to the masjid and pray in Jamaica.
Right, because that's a blessing to have a car. Right. And we all know that when something happens to the car, and you got to put it in the shop, or you don't have enough money to put it in the shop. And so it sits until your next paycheck, or whatever the situation may be, or you have to catch the bus.
Right. And I know that this is the era of, you know, we want to live in walkable communities, and oh, you know, put the car in a garage and we don't even have a car because public transportation until it's nine degrees outside. And then it's not fun to walk anymore and catch public transportation. You know, so that can work for a portion of the year. But the you know, the point is that, use that so you consciously say, I can't have this Nima without using it in a way that is pleasing to a loss paradigm. I think just raising that consciousness training oneself to think like that is how you get to that level. And the last time on those best, obviously, with the lies with
Joseph tofield. And constantly asking him and we know to do either the prophecy someone taught why Alemany Allah deca or shakalaka. Or personally where does it go? Allah ate me helped me to remember you to thank you and to worship you properly, because you need a loss aid to to remember that and to really thank him. No.
Correct. Yeah, the opposite of sugar is coffee. Right?
In the morning in the evening,
after fudger before sunrise, and then after awesome before sunset Nasha for those who
will have a sense of shunning
due to the fact that a lot gives them even when they don't deserve it. Right. And so I don't know if you remember last week when we talked about that example, of a person who knows they didn't finish the job. Right? And then a person is still trying to give them not only what they what they do but even a little bonus. You don't want a bonus I don't feel right. It doesn't feel right to take that because I know I don't deserve it. Well, we know that Allah subhana wa tada even though we fall short, even though sometimes we made when he had the villa, and he intentionally do something that we know is not right. not pleasing to Allah. And Allah azza wa jal is Karim
and he still gives you and so that should
make you pull back and just say, you know what, you should feel too shy to do these things because the last time is still blessing you even though you don't deserve it man
will be attached to a law alone. Why rely upon Him alone
resign their fares give their fares to him, and asked, they plead with him alone, for he is allocating, and there is no limit to his color, as opposed to the creation as opposed to the creation. If you go ask somebody today, even if it was even if it's something you have, and somebody came to ask you today, can I get $2?
comes to you the next day can I get
what happens after Why?
start feeling like now listen?
Apparently, you you've experienced.
no, but listen, if this happened, let's just say this happened for two months straight. Right? 60 days, how much is that? $120. Now, if it's somebody you like, right, and they came and they said to you
You can have $120 even like
me, you might ask him what they need it for something like that, depending on what it is. But it doesn't feel the same as somebody just keep asking you keep asking, keep asking, right? Because that's how we are as the creation of allows parents out of our custom has a limit. I lost her dad has cut him doesn't have a limit. Well, you hit boo and you said, I lost my father loves to be asked. That's the other thing. And so one who knows that allows al Karim, he doesn't stop asking. Just keep asking the laws and put your trust in Him.
In no will lie will lie. Know that because he is L carry. When you ask he's going to give
you know but don't put yourself on that level where you you know you feel like oh because you're a sinner, you're not going to ask.
That's a trap. That's a trap. That's right, ask for forgiveness, ask for guidance. Ask for tofik right. Now,
those know that Allah is Allah Karim will imbibe the quality of generosity, the abbot themselves getting sick with us, they have a wall and this part here is critical, right? Because this is what we were talking about. There are certain qualities that are lost parents, Allah has that he wants us to, to embody. Right? And so we find that the prophets of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they were generous that they were noble that they were honorable that they honored their guests for example, attacker Heidi's who believe he will he will look for me Karen Luke Rami, has the news come to you. Has it reached you the news of the honored guests of Ibrahim tell tell me what were they
why they were angels? How many
towards three All right, fine, fine. No problem.
I mean, what would give you that impression All right. So now what what Abraham give them with some burgers.
The best calf
can three people.
cheeseburger This is a calf press right.
So but but look at that, look at how honored the guest car profit is allowed to sit in.
Set mechanic equipment overlay, while yo mill acid

in an in another Hades failure. Kareem Zhao, who whoever believes in olana last day, the quality of the believers in Allah, those who believe that he is lkt.
Why? Because he says what fill your cream bifulco then let him honor his guests. You see if someone is visiting you, and they are you, they are guests in your home, then you are to honor them. And don't think that hot man, this is all I have. Because Eliza was the one who gave you all you have anyway. And whoever gives for last pantalla and leaves it for LA LA is going to replace it with what's better. But you gotta believe you gotta believe in Allah, that he is lkt. And you got to believe in the last day that you're going to be rewarded for that. Well,
whoever does that, and he is going to be he's going to honor his guests. He's going to honor his neighbor as well. Alright, so these are part of this is part of and this is one of the best things that you can get out of studying the names of the last payment data. From a practical side. There's obviously a lot of things that are theory or based on creed. But then there's the part that deals with what do I do with this? So when you know that the last Phantasm? Could you embody that quality of generosity.
And those who know that a lot is our coding will recognize that the only valid scale of honor is in men and obedience. Aha. How's that? Sydenham Musa Rahim Allah Hosanna he said, My calamity Lee bed and fusa be mislead.
we miss Li tie to learn well, a hairnet and fuscia
a lab email CNC lab, there is nothing that the servants do
that will make them honor themselves more than obedience to a loss.
And there's nothing that will make servants humiliate themselves except for disobedience of a lost parents job. And so a lot of people, when we think that honor, our scale becomes very worldly infocus
possessions, materials size of their house, this is a this person is honored, this person was honored by law allies with Joe Gibbs to those he loves, and knows he doesn't.
That's not a condition.
Some of the some of the richest people in history have been some of the worst people in terms of the obedient solos Pantheon. But largely they'll test people with clear and sharp testing with good and evil. The tests were good is to see if you're going to be thankful.
The test when you test it with, you know, when there's restraints put on you put on your risk and that type of thing. How's your level of patience? Right, but but but having a lot is not necessarily a blessing. It's about what you do with what you have. So that the real scale
is Amen. It's tough law, that obedience to Allah to Allah and this is why lies with us expressly told us in the Quran, in the word at rom com Quran, Karim, in the economic boom, in the light at Costco, that those of you who are most carry, see because there's Kareem and then there's a column which is more more cutting Elektra the most security right? The ones who are most honorable in the sight of Allah are those who have the most taqwa.
Further, those who know that a lot is alkylene will make
they see a lot of blessing upon them. Haha. And this is and this is actually a hadith
I will act was
narrated on his his father, that he went to the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam and he was wearing shabby clothes. So the prophets I sent him said, Do you have any wealth? And he replied to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Yes, I do. He said, what type of wealth do you have? He said, I have all types of wealth, camels and sheep and horses and so forth. And the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, then let a laws Nima and karma, for you be seen.
what that means is what that a philosophy that Allah has blessed you to,
to have wealth. It doesn't mean that you need to have the best suit or the best car. But you shouldn't be acting like you're poor either. And some people do that. claiming to be afraid of dying.
For free, the
fear of loss. law protects you from nine
and do as his prophet Isaiah salatu salam instructed again, it doesn't mean you know, the Muslim
is not extravagant either. I mean, there's that balance that you take out of flesh to wealth, you shouldn't be walking around looking like somebody is going to give us a cat.
You know, because they just say wow, this person is really bad situation. You know,
Mom, sure. Those know that a lot is alkylene will recognize that being showered with a lot of blessings is a test and they are King therefore, not to fail. They really want not
so so and this is something that we we kind of alluded to a bit earlier but to recognize that when Eliza gel your chemo
Jani, or Jani he gives you from his NEMA. That's a test.
So test from L Corinne. Attach coral and tactful. Will you be grateful or will you be disobedient
Now, an ungrateful fellowship those who know that Allah will invite them they will they have exhausted they will have exhausted character and they will avoid pettiness. What's that mean? You cannot be courteous and be petty.
No, seriously, and this is important to understand because there's a lot of petty people.
And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
in the Lucha karimun you hate will come. Will you hip boo ma de la? Jolla, Cora who's f Silva.
Allah Subhana. Allah is kitty.
I'm not translating. And he loves el Cara.
And he loves exalted character.
And he despises pettiness.
it goes back, right? And that's the whole point. This is why some people when they translate this Hadith, which has been collected by a hacker and by the way, and declared authentic by a number of scholars of Hadith,
and beforehand when I think of the rezac Sinani and his Musonda as well, but the point is that what that if you translate this howdy is, Allah is generous, and he loves generosity, and he loves exalted character.
And he despises pettiness, it doesn't really flow. So Allah is Kadeem, he's honorable.
He's noble, and he loves honor and nobility. And he loves exalted character, because those who are honorable they have what those who are, who are honorable in terms of their nature inside of themselves, or what
they they show exalted character, and their interactions with people. And they avoid pettiness.
And that, and that has to start in the home. Right? Don't be petty with your children. Don't be petty with your wife. You know, a person was honorable. goes above that. Yes. Give me a
penny in the house.
All right. Okay. So let's just stop. I am surprised that you're asking me, because I'm, I know, some of the other brothers here probably just experienced, or we're doing something petty,
you know, within the last few days. All right. But
I'll see you laughing because they tell you.
anybody, anybody have an example of something that's petty?
Nobody will lie.
Well, let's get the example of being petty good.
Not not well, honey was gonna give us an example of
a that is very pretty.
Oh, it is. But people do it all the time. People do it all the time. Like you said, keeping score.
Hmm, you have an example. But
think things happen all the time. And it's but that's where it starts. It starts with trying to go go and tit for tat. All right. So Oh, because they did this. Now I'm gonna do that. Right.
Right. Right. Or they didn't do that. So I'm not gonna I'm not gonna do it. I'm not gonna uphold, you know, my end of the bargain, or whatever it was. And I mean, it gets very, it can get very petty. Get very petty right now
guarantees on the outskirts of Paradise, a house.
No, it's not. It's not exactly the same here. It's not exactly the same here but but part of being a part of having honorable character is that one is that one avoids unnecessary argumentation, not less, no doubt about it, but but it's a little different than being petty. Because a person may a person may argue with somebody, all right, it may seem unnecessary or whatever like that.
But it's not over something petty. All right, the pettiness is, unfortunately, there's some people who just, they can't they got to get it out their system. All right? So they have to respond. Every time something happens. And it's real petty, and it's just No, let's be honorable, let's be courteous. Now.
Is there a way
check yourself when you're doing something for people?
You, your wife, your husband have certain rights and obligations, and you do that, you know, you love him, you care for him, you want to be happy. But you also have
been given that responsibility of protecting on our responsibility.
will lie Zack love halen, that's a high level and that's what we should strive for. And that is that just service to your spouse is not because it's your spouse is to please Allah subhana wa Tada. So even if they're not giving you all of your rights, so even if they've even if they've fallen short on their end of the bargain, it doesn't mean that I'm going to meet them where they are and false, because that's all that's gonna lead to is the relationship falling apart. And so that is a good way to check yourself. And just to say a lot is Kareem, even me, even my fall short of my rights to a last minute and Allah still gives me he still provides and I'm not gonna, I'm going to try to be
honorable. I'm going to try to be pretty tight. Next. Last last one.
Last in the last quarter, on on what? Kareem and Nola Koran, Karim, Allah Subhana. Allah His book is Kareem, and we should honor that book, by reading it, by acting according to it by pondering over its meanings and Subhanallah once I can say
one thing I want you to look at here, the prophet it is Salatu was Salam honoured The Book of Allah right. He was as a Chateau de lo Tana and had described him he embodied the Quran he was like the Quran walking all right now
what kind of Hulu Al Quran his character was the Quran? What one thing that's, that's amazing to me, and it all kind of ties in. When was the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the most
courteous one, was he the most joette Ramadan? Ramadan, right, he was odd. Anyway, he was the most he was Edgewood an S geoweb edgeworth. Right. He was the most generous that actually were magnanimous of of all people. And he was the most generous when in Ramadan.
What is the connection with a laws book?
What can I What can I best for the low tide? and whom I said what can I do with my akuna feed on my mind? Hina Yo, karhu jabril will you there is Rahul chorion. He was the most generous in Ramadan when he would meet jabril and they and they will go over the poor I'm together. You see, because that Koran that Quran honoring Allah subhanaw taala his book pushed him to be even more generous because he was acting. He was implementing the teachings of the Quran. We got to take questions at the end. We're almost done. Do I relate it to this Divine Name? Okay, Muslim love the alongside and who narrates in his psyche, and I'm just gonna go over this very quickly.
When a person dies, what what is the duality that we say Allah? Allahu Allahu wifey. He was one who were at Kareem Newsela who was accurate from Corinne. Okay, what it and what is newzoo la Who is this or news la who
which is what is prepared for the guests. Okay, and noozle is the first place where your guests so usually like the way the houses or the way that the houses are set up right.
In their world of course with his with his terminology comes from is that there's a place where your guess initially goes and before they eat, okay, so there's like one wrong way You know, they serve tea and coffee and dates and that type of thing. And then that
Place right there is a noodle. That's that initial place. If we're talking about a place if we're talking about news, learn with the sukoon. Jose, then what we're talking about is what is actually given to the guests. All right, what has actually been prepared for the guests anyway? It's all what eccotemp newsela who and you can translate that as honoring his
place where he is going to be was sitting with Hannah who and make wide his his entrance? I need the grave where he's going to be. So make it an honorable place for him. Mashie All right, do I related to this Divine Name?
Hey, well visually reported that he met a Muslim or the Alexander No. said to him it's been reported to me that someone is narrated to you from the province I sent him that when he entered the masjid he would say I will be learning love him. While he was he he and Kareem will be watching hilker he was so funny and Kadima, shippon ojima superfusion Almighty Allah and his noble face and it is permissible to seek refuge with the effect of a loss of habitat with his names and his attributes the same way it is permissible to swear by loss of habitat, his names and his attributes and it is in his eternal domain from the occurs double when anyone says so. The shade pine says he is
protected from me for the remainder of the day.
This Hadith is collected by Abu Dhabi so if you get up and you go pray for budget and domestic and upon entering the masjid you say I was in the lobby in my big hill carry he was so funny Kadeem in a shape and then be like you'll be protected from the shape on for the remainder of the day Hadid is collected by Abu Dhabi and the shekel banni Rahim Allah to Allah greeted it as authentic type last one last one. You are related to this Divine Name and I shall the low tide and her colleague cooks era salado 18 item two au lait Latino a year later two leaders from Qatar medical via color Cooley Aloma in the chi foo one Kareem to Herbalife widely accepted this Heidi is by efe and I met her I
brought it here because so many people say it.
But the correct wording of this hadith is without Katie allama in the Thai food one to Herbalife word five widely without any other addition to our food
and even tournament he pointed to his weakness and other scholars many scholars have had he have shown that this is not part of the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is the only reason I mentioned that here. It's not actually something that we would make do with Willow, Tana Adam.
This was the last slide. Okay, we're gonna stop here, but I'm still gonna let you read it. And then you can work with your partner over the telephone. When we come back next week, and we talk about it makes you think all week about it and show.
This is the same idea that we mentioned earlier from today, man. I didn't say that. Color has him in the lobby, Leah blue and he escudo and echoed woman shut off into med school and I've seen him a couple of it not be linnaean pity. He said this is from the grace of my Lord to test whether I'm grateful and if anyone is grateful it is for his own good. But if anyone's ungrateful, my lord is Ronnie Carey, discuss some of the possible benefits of a law of mentioning his name. Hello, Ronnie with his name, Al Karim.
We got the homework assignment.
I don't have Google Classroom. I'm not gonna beat you up.
All right, but but I want you to work on this. All right, especially if we get snowed in on the weekend. You have no excuse. So you work on this. I will give me an alkylene what are some of the possible benefits and the scholars are actually mentioned several. So you know, hopefully you can give it some thought. And come back next week. Be in the lights and ready to discuss that and we'll move on to allow some handouts add his name's
roof and overhead next week and Sharla are all an overhead then we'll follow that up with Simeon Basildon, Hamid and Avi Michelle lozada. Move on to many other of the names of Allah subhanaw taala that should help inspire all and the last panel down and now she
ability for us, okay?
the slander of ice.
And one of his relatives was caught up in that, and he was won't cut him off, right? Cuz he used to take care of me I'm supporting. And then a law still told him to resume taking care of him. So this was showing our bucket who was the most generous from the companions that the nobility aspect was still to be in place. That's right.
Right, it is. And that's something that shake Hanif also kind of indicated in last class about about forgiveness, right.
You know, embodying that quality as well. And that is part of that is part of being Kareem, in fact, the majority of the scholars who,
when they talk about what it means to be happy lay and what it means when we talk about a lot is okay, because again, a lot of times we have to understand this, first thing we have to do is just understand what these things mean linguistically, how they apply to the creation and then we can look at, you know, what it means, as it relates to a loss of habitat, but almost all of the scholars at tubridy l code for B, l ghazali. And all of the rest of them have written separate books on smls parents.
They mentioned that he is the one who forgives even those who don't deserve to be forgiven even without one of those making Toba that that's part of being Corinne. That is part of having at noble you know, character and gender and honor.
Man, no doubt about it. A lot of fans out, shoot Allah Subhana Allah says in the La La of futile and you should be
doing a dareka Ma sha. Allah does not forgive that one associate partners with him, but he forgives what is lesser than that, to whom He wills when when they don't make Toba?
As for those who make Toba men tab, it's like he has no sin in the first place.
So those last night out of forgives even those who haven't asked for forgiveness,
those who know that the laws of ring will have a sense of shyness. Okay. Yes, yes.
Even when they don't deserve it, yes. Balancing that shyness with the
with the idea that you know,
Right, right. But But this sense of shyness means it doesn't mean a shyness from asking, it means a shyness from continuing to not be deserving, meaning continuing and that which is disobedient, so allows for an insider so you thought you catch yourself because you're too shy to disobey Him at this point he keeps he keeps giving to you. So it doesn't mean that you would stop it doesn't mean you become shy from asking, but it means you become shy from disobeying
because but you but that's again, that's them and that's because you know, you get to a point where it's going to annoy them. Whereas the last rant Allah loves to be asked, and so we should we should keep asking the last minute and what do I who will be better is the prophecy Some say by require Hello, hello son of robotic and then Amina Mohammed subhanak La Jolla we humbly channel alilaguna into stock records will be like
